Proxy and SecureXL

Is there any way that SecureXL Medium path can be used when the GW is used as a proxy?

We have a customer that has a 15600 and they have asked us to setup a proxy for several reasons. Now they are migrating to Office365 and I see a lot of traffic hitting the FW path, some traffic hitting the medium path and none hitting the fast path.

As Proxy traffic needs to be handled by the gateway itself, I would not expect this to be able to accelerated, so my thoughts were to ask the customer to exclude the Office 365 URL's from the PAC file, so they will not use the proxy, thus allowing this traffic to be accelerated.

They also have WiFi networks that do not need to use the proxy and we see 200/600Mbps in traffic in PXL/FW paths. We have 12 cores for the FW-Workers but are all at or close to 100% at the busy moments.
